2021 is closing in on its halfway point & that means insurance companies have filed their new rates for the entire year. Now is the perfect time for you to shop your home AND auto insurance to make sure you are not paying too much in premiums. With major weather events hitting Arkansas and Missouri within the last year there are some significant rate changes hitting the market. If you do not shop you will over pay! Bentonville, Rogers, Fayetteville and Springdale have all had major hail and wind storms and have seen the most rate increases in the state. Let OZK help!

What is the best way to begin the process of shopping the insurance market?

  1. Call your current agent and ask if your company has taken a rate increase/decrease.
  2. Ask for a copy of your current insurance plan from your agent.

Once you obtain this information you now have two options:

  1. Spend hours of your time filling out online questionnaires and taking phone calls from insurance call centers.
  2. Call OZK Insurance and let our agents do all of the work for you!

What does an OZK agent do for you?

  1. They will obtain all of the needed information from the copy of your current insurance plan. NO TIME WASTED ON THE PHONE!
  2. They will compare your current coverage package and always try to match or better your plan. GET FREE ADVICE!
  3. They will shop your package with multiple top rated companies and will provide the absolute best rates you can find in your area.
  4. Once your renewal is due the OZK retention team will automatically repeat this process FREE OF CHARGE! This means you will have the best coverage and rates at all times!

All you have to do is give OZK a call at 479-715-4200 or request a quote! Once you make the call, our agents will do the rest. When it comes to home, auto, and property insurance OZK is the best!
